“Small Museum with Big Arts”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Even though this museum is smaller than the average art museum, they have good mixture of arts from different parts of the world. I visited on quiet week day, which turn out to be perfect since there were not many people blocking my view and I had ample of time to observe and make some notes for my arts project in school. They also have a restaurant inside the museum and food was good

“Good for a smaller museum”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

They have a really good mix of art here, kind of a sampler, and for a small museum it's pretty impressive. The European collection is my favorite, they have a good number of French impressionists, etc. I really like the restaurant, too. GOod food and a beautiful terrace.

It is a cute museum with a little of everything. I enjoyed my time in there but there was nothing too impressive.

If you are looking for an outing with a small group this is a very manageable and well laid out museum.

“Incredible Collection”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

I live in Cincinnati and visit the Art Museum every month or so to just wander among the masterpieces. The collection in Cincinnati is amazing- top works from many artists (check the website) and it never feels crowded. A bit of peace and beauty very close to downtown. (free too)
